Welcome to our blog. We are a class of year 0-1 students (5-6 yr olds) at Hope Primary School in New Zealand. Our teacher is Mrs Ross and this blog is a journal of our learning experiences while we are here in Room 3.
Our Country Bazaar is on at school this weekend. Room 3 children had the job of making some marshmallow sweets to be sold on the day.
We obviously had a great amount of fun in the process.
I hope you can come along and support our school.
Don't forget to also head into the silent auction and place your bid on our Doodle Bugs painting...
There might be something else you would like to bid on too. Each classroom has a piece of art to sell.... Head in and have a look this weekend. See you there.
This week for Discovery Time we made daffodils and robots, we played with plasticine and magnets and some of us also practised our skipping and yo yo skills.
Our focus for most of this term has been to "Have a Go" and "Keep Trying "we have been encouraging each other to try new things and keep trying when something isn't working well. We have learnt that if you are trying to make something and it isn't going well.... if you make changes to how you are doing the task it can help to get the job done.
This term most of our artwork has given us experience in painting with dye. By using dye we get a lovely bright range of colours and we are also able to blend them easily.
After we had finished our piece of art for the Country Bazaar where we had learnt how to draw doodle bugs we then made drawings of a jar with some bugs in it...take a look.
